Just a nought, a cipher, that’s all I am!

The Surface and the Deep

Published by Sanket Rathod under , , , , , , on Saturday, September 08, 2012

I see the surface of sea,
I see knowledge and acceptance.
And yet I sense, underneath,
An enigma that is the ocean.

A sense of understanding,
With clarity and consciousness,
Followed by proper planning,
The future I've thus devised to face.

Always, yet, something there is
That makes me shift my steady gaze
From path that I have readied
Towards an unknown mysterious maze.

I break the calm of surface
And take a plunge into the deeps.
A thought yet in my mind stays,
'I'll have to in time come up to breathe.'

Have you come back to the surface yet ? :)

I don't think I dived deep "enough" to come back...

Poignant. I love the way you express what I thought could not be.
